Using Acupuncture for IVF and IUI Support
Many of my patients choose assisted reproductive technology or "ART". These procedures can include IVF, ICSI and IUI’s. Clinical research has shown that acupuncture can be very beneficial by increasing the odds of conceiving a viable pregnancy as well as delivering a healthy baby at the end of pregnancy.
Can Acupuncture Increase the Effectiveness of IUI/IVF Treatment?
If you are planning to try ART, it is beneficial to start acupuncture three months before the procedure. This allows:
- Reduced stress and anxiety
- Increased blood flow to the uterus
- Healthy cervical mucous
- Increased thickness of the uterine lining
- Balanced hormones
- Improved ovarian function
- Enhanced immunity
- Reduced side effects from the medications
Whether you are planning to have an ART procedure or you are in the middle of an ART procedure, acupuncture is proven to increase success rates.
